    Measuring Internet Gaming Disorder in Chinese international students in the United Kingdom

    Ricardo Tejeiro, Anna Chen and Jorge L. Gómez-Vallecillo

    The number of international students at higher education institutions has increased
    dramatically over the past decades, in parallel to the efforts to identify, measure and manage the
    special challenges they meet and their potentially negative responses. Internet gaming disorder
    (IGD) has been identified as a potential problem in this context, but its measurement in some
    specific populations is a challenging task because few adequate instruments exist. This paper
    presents the adaptation and validation on a sample of Chinese young adults of one of the most
    commonly used questionnaires in this area, the Problem Video Game Playing scale (PVP).
